Knowledge management often refers to various theories and definitions. However, there is a lack of consensus on what exactly knowledge management is and what constitutes a knowledge management system. We are engaged in research into the development of knowledge management systems from principles of practical knowledge management uncovered by a thorough analysis of the literature. As a precursor to field work with ‘knowledge practitioners’ we have conducted our analyses on the ‘practices’ embodied in seminal work of scholars, even as they have changed for individual researcher over time. Thus this paper explains our approach in attempting to identify elements of knowledge management systems according to scholars’ texts in the literature.
